Hayward role at TNK-BP in doubt

Embattled former BP boss Tony Hayward’s place on the board of the firm’s Russian joint venture TNK-BP is in doubt , with the board understood to be considering his position. If he is ousted from the role it would cut his last tie to the company he headed up for three years. He was criticised for his handling of the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
